Broken Wishbone, bronze sculpture by Lori Kay

Broken Wishbone
Bronze,, 9’ x 6’ 3” x 2’ 3”

A human-scale gateway that people can walk through and children can play around portrays part of our American cultural heritage: the tradition of breaking a wishbone at dinner time. The sculpture’s break represents hopes and dreams juxtaposed with disappointments and unrequited dreams. Broken Wish Bone was inspired by the old tradition of breaking the wishbone along with one’s silent expression of hopes and wishes.
